    Trainee Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 7 weeks - interviewed at Nestlé.

    Interview Details

    First interview was online, via a program where they recorded me answering 10 questions (timed, approx. 1-2 min answer for each question). Then I was invited for a Skype interview with the line manager who told me more about the position. This took about 40 min, after that I was asked several questions (e.g. follow up on my answer from the first interview). Original 45 min skype interview ended up taking about 60 min.
    People I had contact with were ok. What I found rude was not answering my questions. I mailed twice during this process to ask when to expect their decision, but no reply at all until my second invitation (sent to me a few day in advance) and final e-mail (sent to me about 1.5 weeks after I emailed them). Also no feedback/reply at all, even when clearly stating they will be available for further questions and feedback.
